Quick question about sewer hoses.

I need a longer hose for my site then the one that came with the trailer. The distance is 18 feet. If a new hose is labeled 20 feet does that mean when fully stretched out or is that a useable length? The ground drains are just a loose fit and I don't want it pulling off.

Thanks.

Count on that being 20' fully extended, just before tearing apart!

Good to know you can use an extension. Too bad we don't have anything like Campingworld here but I'll check out Canadian Tire. See what they have.

I've used my Sewer Solution for 3 yr so far and it's a great device. In my new (Feb) storage slot the dump is about 25' away. 3 sections of SS hose and I can dump from the slot. I already had 2 sections and got the third for this convenience. Most won't have such a convenient setup but it sure works for me. The SS will even dump uphill.
RinoFlex does seem to be the most popular tho.

I was considering the Sewer Solution, but I'm afraid my sewer connection may be too far away. Do you think it could go further than the recommended distance?

If I could go, say 60' or so (80' max), I could use it at home and drop it into my septic system behind the house.

I just took a look at their web site and saw they claim "up to 100' or uphill up to 3'" so I'd expect 60'-80' would be good if it's not much of an uphill run. I use 3 x 10' sections with no problems at all.
Would it be practical to run an extension to the existing sewer to have a closer connection?

Yeah, I was thinking of running a PVC along the side of the house so I could have a bit closer connection...
